Farm Equipment

Here are some very old implements that I’ve dragged around turning the ground under over the years with some very large tractors. Via my Nikon and 35mm Primary lens.

Pig

We Northeasters use different words to describe things in a different way than those here in the Desert Southwest. In conversation with people here in Nevada I find it funny that people here don’t see the LP fuel tank below as a Pig. Nope, no legs, no coiling twisty tail or pink snouts or oinks here! Nor are there any breakfast foods either but I can certainly recommend using the LP gas in this tank to cook your bacon for breakfast!

Christmas Photos

Here are twenty more photos from my recent trip to Michigan for the family Christmas. There are a few more folders to go from the trip. I plan on visiting different hotels and venues on the Vegas Strip as soon as I can for some different photos than I usually post.

The Lapeer Depot

Restored in 1991 as the sign says, I was there during the reconstruction as well as the repainting of the retired train cars. They look like hell these days, the old train nutter crew I hung around with during those days has apparently disbanded! No more retired rail car painting. I spent many hours hanging around here with friends as at the time I was in my second rotten marriage. Marriage isn’t good for me, I’m not good for marriage!

The Lapeer County Courthouse

I’ve wanted to get some better photos of this very old courthouse for some time now. Well, it was twenty degrees or so and breezy when I used the Nikon and a 35mm Primary lens for these photos and it wasn’t an enjoyable experience for a person so completely acclimated to the Mojave Desert environment. Summer may have been better but then the leaves would block some photos. Who’s being picky here?

In any case I hope you like my little mini tour of the courthouse exterior. The building didn’t appear to be open hence I didn’t attempt to go inside. I’ve been inside plenty of times over the years. The last time though was some years ago with the now ex wife just before we were married. Well, we can’t allow old memories that make use uncomfortable to interfere with moving forward in our lives can we? Nope…. Eighteen photos in this set.

Five Before The Snow

I arrived in Michigan one full day before our family Christmas party to have some free time for driving around town and to visit with my dad. I miss him so much! The snow didn’t show until after dark on this day so I got some decent photos without the irritation of dealing with the snow. More to come from my recent Michigan trip.
